Former soccer star and possibly Miami Major League Soccer owner David Beckham was back in South Florida.
It’s been two months since the English soccer star hopped on a stage, his back to Miami’s sparkling Biscayne Bay, and announced plans to start a Major League Soccer franchise. The plan — and Beckham — have been almost universally accepted by every sector of the city.
While soccer superstar David Beckham eyes PortMiami for a possible Major League Soccer stadium, a group of Miami-Dade mayors have signed on against the plan.

The Denver Broncos seemed unstoppable, even unbeatable at times during the 2013 season. But, when the Vince Lombardi Trophy was on the line, they were blown out by the Seattle Seahawks.
Defense wins championships, and the NFL has not seen a defense like Seattle’s in a long time.
